Review of Denver, Colorado

Denver: It’s Not for Everyone!
Star Rating - 10/22/2022
During my 25 years in Denver, I’ve witnessed trends found in other metro areas: homeless camps, panhandlers, worsening traffic, increased crime and rapidly appreciating home prices. Four stars, though it’s important to remember those conditions are increasingly true throughout the US.
Nonetheless, I still love Denver. The weather is beautiful, outdoor activities abound. The state offers a lot of digital services for its citizens.
If you work in Information Technology, the job market here is robust and competitive; ditto for health care and for financial services. With the cost of living here, it’s important to recognize that it will be tough to make ends meet without a solid education, demonstrable experience and a positive or ‘get ‘er done’ attitude.

Thanks! Summer weather is fine by me, because of radiational cooling. I sleep with the second floor windows open, and it’s most always chilly compared to summer daytime high temperatures. Life here isn’t inexpensive, that’s for sure.

i agree with your point, but denver's summer weather is absolutely awful. smoky, stormy, windy, hot as hell... the winter weather's awesome, though. you're the only person here who actually gives reasons to love denver other than "ooooh beer and mountain"
